So this rather nasty bug just happened to me...

Had 40 legendaries and uniques stored in my bank, checked it today to swap out some gear, and the bank was empty. 0/40. Everything gone...

Did some googling, and it seems like this is not all that uncommon -- lots of reddit threads and gearbox forum posts about it, but no solutions and no acknowledgement of the issue yet.

Just a heads up to all you guys playing now, until this is patched, you might want to keep all your really good stuff in your inventory.

Yep. Lost like 25-ish legendaries. And my guardian rank is in the negative. Definitely just gonna let this game simmer for a while and wait for some much needed stability patched and achievement fix updates as all my remaining achs are glitched. YAY!

Same thing happened with BL2 early on. Your bank and game were at risk of being corrupted for no reason. Kept me from playing for awhile until a fix was issued.

I got a reply from Gearbox support asking for more information, so I'll update if anything useful comes out of it.

Honestly I am not so upset about losing my gear, I had nothing irreplaceable in there (I still haven't claimed my pre order bonuses, thankfully). But it's kinda not a great feeling knowing that I can just lose my stuff for no reason...

Yeah that sucks, sorry to hear it. My bank is full oy legendaries since i've been farming yesterday and this morning. I made sure to put all the important stuff in my inventory though since reading this.

happened to me as well after suffering from a crahs in co-op. It's sad cuz i want to play with friends, but risk of everything just getting nuked isn't a fun prospect. I now keep all my lengedaries on me...

It sounds like this happens more often when playing co-op, but I've only ever played solo, so it can happen there too. (I usually play in offline mode because it may or may not help the framerate, so why not)

Their list of known issues only acknowledges it on PC and says it's related to cloud saves. They don't provide any info for console though...

I'm not even using the bank right now just in case. I've got a second profile with 8 different toons to stash all my items on for now.

Yeah same, you can easily give them cash too so you can max their backpack space. Only thing is you can't that I can see name them which you could do in BL2 made it handy in that you could call them shotgun, pistol etc.
